Four down, one to go! Who knew wine was that much of a motivator for me? Ha! I completed all of my goals yesterday: I tracked all of my food but dinner (which consisted of a spinach panini on whole grain bread with dijon red potatoes and a about .5c of penne with pesto and because I wasn't even at 1,000 calories by dinner and knew dinner wasn't 1,000, I treated myself to a chocolate oatmeal cookie)! I also managed to hammer out a rough draft of my business' Mission Statement and worked on both of my projects. Lastly, I read over 40pgs of my book!
Done like dinner my friends!
And, if you haven't seen my social media frenzy this morning (which only really consisted of Facebook, Twitter and SP so perhaps not much of a "frenzy"), for runners in the Toronto area there's a great GroupOn deal for this weekend only, it's $50 worth of stuff at The Running Room for only $25. I bought mine already, have you? Here's the link: www.groupon.com/r/uu1116
Running Room is expensive enough so hopefully this'll help you get something nice. And if you want to buy it but you're out of the area, feel free to buy it for me! Just send the coupon over to thereselean(at)gmail(dot)com.
Think I may put it towards a pair of new shoes though. I need some!
So happy to see Friday here! It's been a fairly quick week but I'm tired today! I had two back-to-back nights of very late classes and even "slept in" until 7am this morning as I was NOT wanting to get out of bed. But I'm really looking forward to my Friday Night Chillax Party as I now call it. I've decided to not book myself up on Friday nights if I can at all help it just so I can unwind from the week. I have a bunch of random ingredients in the fridge to use up so my only plan is to hop on the elliptical, make a fun and nutritious dinner and then veg.
Sooo...it only hit me about two weeks ago the enormity of my 30k race. As it turns out, I dismiss a distance if it doesn't say "marathon" in the title as being something I don't need to worry too much about. Thankfully that naivete came to a screeching halt when it hit me like a ton of bricks that I'll be running 3/4 of a FULL marathon this year. That's absolultely nothing to sneeze at and something I actually need to pay close attention to and prepare for. I finally understand what marathoners go through when they say they can't fathom the distance. I know I can do it, it just freaks me the hell OUT! EEK!!!!!!!!!!
Goals for today:
- Track food!
- 60 minutes on the elliptical.
- Revise and send Ethics Form to T.A..
- Get a rough draft on Sensory Integration Therapy demonstration idea.
